Re: AD 14 KIELGE

You are so right when I was 5 years old my mother went up a lower mountain right next to this one and all the way up I feared that the big one ( Traunstein ) will fall on us. Must have been the perception of a five year old.

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Hi, You really have to think about a lot of things just because the boat has an engine. I am already a bit out of my depth arranging my lines for halyard, the topping lifts, mast lift, burgee halyard, yard and luff hauling parrels. But every time I dress the mast I get it done quicker. I am looking ...

Re: AD 14 KIELGE

Hi, My carbon mast is finished and and my son suggested we should go for a sail on Saturday. Getting the boat ready at the slip was very fast with his strong help and he raised the mast in 15 seconds and then he insisted to make the following picture: Me in front of the boat just before we put it in...

Re: AD 14 KIELGE

Hi, Today after 2 sleepless nights because of thoughts about glueing my carbon mast pieces I did it at last and it took very little time. I think building my boat has taught me preparation for any task is the key to easy execution. I first stuck on the 2 inserts lots of plastic tape around it like o...

Re: Carbon mast extention mounting question

Hi, Thank you so much Joe2700. I will adhere to all your advises. You are right the expensive pipe is clear coated, but this is exactly the pipe which I will use as the inside connection, only the 20 cm at the masthead I do not have to paint. I will paint the whole mast white the same as I did with ...

Re: AD 14 KIELGE

Hallo Michael, Yes the boom and yard I already made a long time ago and they turned out perfect. In hindsight I could have made them with a smaller than 50 mm diameter but they work fine and weigh only around 900 gram each. On one I used peel ply and it weighs a bit less than the other. Here a pictu...

Re: AD 14 KIELGE

Hi, The size of the carbon tube was determined by my aluminium mast which is a standard mast of 55 by 60 mm. I wanted something as strong as that and I did not want to have a bigger hole at the mast partner and foot and then there was the consideration to have a mast like the windsurfers who have a ...

Re: AD 14 KIELGE

Hi, Thanks George and Bogie for the information. As there is nothing as boring as a finished boat I am busy to get my new 3,5 KG Carbon mast together. It cost quite a bit but I will be able to raise it by myself with this small weight. Here the first picture of it where I put the 4 pieces together f...
